Not too long ago, I was on vacation with my family when I came up with this GREAT idea!
Since our room was on the FOURTH floor of the hotel, I decided I would take the STAIRS every day to work off some of those extra vacation calories.
Walking up all those steps was EASY the first couple of days. I even trotted, just to prove to my daughter that it was NO BIG DEAL!
(I guess I was kind of proud of myself.)
Easier Said Than Done
But then the next couple days, it seemed to get HARDER. It started to HURT more. Ouch!!! What’s up with that?
You would think it would get EASIER each day. But, NO!!!
Sometimes in life, things will actually get HARDER before they get any easier.
It Takes Time
From the beginning of our CLIMB, until we finally see our reward…TIME will pass.
We have to HANG in there and be TOUGH!!
Eventually, that thing that ALMOST wore us down will become SO easy that it’ll seem like NOTHING!
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9 (NLT)
Don’t quit just because it hurts a little bit! Keep it up! DON’T STOP!
The ease to walk THROUGH this “hard time” is on the way; and we’ll come out on the other side STRONGER and BETTER than before!
“Father, we know that the COURAGE and STRENGTH to walk through any situation is found in YOU!”
“We have FAITH in what You’re doing in our lives. With You on our side, we WILL make it to the top!”
